. and there is a process by which we need to follow. it was framed in our constitutional. george washington made it clear. >> sir, while we understand that there is, you know, the responsibility right now is coming from the president because of the words that were used by the secretary of state john kerry yesterday saying it really is undeniable, but do you need stronger confirmation that not only are there deaths associated with chemical weapons but they are directly linked with bashar al assad and his government? >> thomas, one of the main purpose of what i'm asking here and i think is clearly required under our constitution is to have the time to see that evidence, to walk through it and deliberate it on the house floor. right now, the president, i think, kind of thrown us a bone, if you will. he is meeting or talking to individual members. this is helpful but no substitute for engaging the institution itself. the discussions are taking place in private right now they need to take place on the house floor and senate floor. the president really, i think, looks for his moral foundation in this from the
and house members on syrian intelligence tomorrow in washington. officials were expected to lay out plans for military action against the assad regime. the head of the meeting, it is important that lawmakers ask tough questions of the president. for example, both iran and syria will attack israel if the u.s. launches a military attack. if it happens, how will the administration respond? will they help our closest ally in the region? finally, what is the end game if assad's regime is toppled? is there a possibility al qaeda-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern here is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people
and washington, d.c. but either way, when these mistakes were made, although we've been told that the government tried to be as transparent as possible, nobody was told that those mistakes were made and the information that we got in this report from the "washington post" last night comes from edward snowden, the man who leaked the initial information about the nsa program and now has temporary asylum in russia. bill: funny how that works, huh? senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler is on vacation with the president at martha's vineyard. actually wendell's working. the president is on vacation. what's the white house saying about this, wendell? >> reporter: the white house appears to have been blindsided by this sorry. officials are referring reporters to the national security agency and to senate intelligence committee chair dianne feinstein who says in a written statement, quote, we can and should do more to independently verify that nsa's operations are appropriate and its reports of compliance incidents are accurate. now the president has contended while there is reas

with their russian counterparts right here in washington. >>> thank you. joining us now, david ig. good morning. >> good morning, norah. there have been issues over all of that and now edward snowden, but how significant is it to have the president of the united states cancel a summit meeting with another leader. >> it's pretty darn significant. it's the lowest point they have reached since the obama administration and the officials in the white house stressed to me we don't want to blow up the relationship, but nonetheless, this is quite a sharp breach. the meeting that will take place tomorrow with secretary kerry and russian foreign minister sergei love sergei, there's a lot more to talk about. they're interested in negotiating some kind of nuclear deal to. get that done will require russian help. is russia prepared to help on it? same thing with syria. the discussions will continue but the feeling is there's nothing that can be taken to the president for decision. when you have a summit you have deliverables, you know what's going to be agreed on. that was. the case here
. washington however has been demanding that russia extradite snowden. they want to press espionage charges on him but president putin has rejected that. by allowing at least temporary asylum status, empolice italy embracing this guy a little bit, there is also the threat that president obama might cancel a stopover in moscow on a trip to russia in sent for the g20 summit. according to kremlin officials this is not going to happen. everything is fine. and again the washington side they have been trying todown play this a little bit too. they don't want this snowden affair to rock their entire international relations with russia however they want this guy but now he is a little bit deeper inside rush share, we'll see what the white house says later. thank you, greg palkot for the breaking news out of london today. >> another big story we're following, sentencing day for the ohio man that pleaded guilty to kidnapping three woman and keeping them captive for a decade. before we know how much time ariel castro will get he will have the opportu we may hear from one or more of the three victims w
? kick off your commonwealth of opportunity tour the very same day the "washington post" publishes new information about what yet more cash that you have taken since you have been governor. this time it was $50,000, apparently, that governor bob mcdonnell took from a virginia beach doctor. the governor took the money from the doctor then turned around and offered that same doctor a seat on a state medical board. but this time, thankfully, there appears to be a saving grace for the governor in that the quo was apparently rejected by the quid. even though the governor took the doctor's 50 grand then offered the doctor that seat on the state medical board, the doctor did not accept the offer. so, saving grace. since governor ultrasound has decided to just be completely u.n. embarrassed by all this, totally unashamed, federal grand jury, grand schmury, it's the commonwealth of opportunity for me. hey, buddy, have i got a deal for you? governor ultrasound is trying to appear untroubled by all the trouble he's in, the other person in virginia politics getting into deeper and deeper political
